'''Henry Wadsworth Longfellow''' (February 27, 1807 – March 24, 1882) was an American poet and educator whose works include "Paul Revere's Ride", ''The Song of Hiawatha'', and ''Evangeline''. He was also the first American to translate Dante Alighieri's ''Divine Comedy'', and was one of the five Fireside Poets from New England. Longfellow was born in Portland, Maine, which was then still part of Massachusetts. He studied at Bowdoin College. After spending time in Europe, he became a professor at Bowdoin and, later, at Harvard College. His first major poetry collections were ''Voices of the Night'' (1839) and ''Ballads and Other Poems'' (1841). Longfellow retired from teaching in 1854, to focus on his writing. He lived the remainder of his life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in a former Revolutionary War headquarters of George Washington. His first wife Mary Potter died in 1835, after a miscarriage....
